It cooks one burger or one chicken breast at a time. My husband uses it and does a good job. I stopped using it because there was no heat adjuster and i ended up drying out the meat or making the outside of it, overcooked. Unless you know how to clean appliances, don’t get the white one. Ours is stained yellow and orange, around the steam areas. I haven’t had good results with the bun warmer. I stopped using it when my hamburger bun got hard on the bottom and soggy on top. There’s a lot of grease and crusties still on the grill, after cooking, but it does drain a lot of the fat off into the plastic tray. The features i wish this machine had: dark color, cooks 3-4 portions at one time, an adjustable heat (low, medium, high) knob with easy to read identification, strong plastic tongs instead of this flimsy spatula, and disposable grease catching containers.
The grill is the perfect size to cook two burgers or a medium size steak or chicken breast. The meat is cooked in 3-4 minutes. I really like the bun warmer feature. I put my bun or bread in as the grill is heating up. The bun is then nice a warm by the time the meat is done. The grill cleans up easily with a wet paper towel. This is my second george forman grill. The first lasted 10 years and was used multiple times a week.
It’s kind of easy to clean i suppose. The bun warmer isn’t all that great. It cooks quickly though and everything i’ve made on it has been cooked through and tastes pretty good. I’d recommend it if you were looking for a personal grill.
Fast ship and great product. Love this mini grill perfect for any space.
I got one 9 months ago and i quit using anything else to cook meat since first use. It makes cooking meat easy, fast and easy to cleanup after. As a bonus the meat tastes better, far better than oven, frying, microwave or convection oven. I use a lot less steak sauce and katsup because the meat tastes good. I’ve just bought two more from amazon since the price went down from the first one i bought. This thing actually lived up to and far exceeded all the ads and hype.
- Great single serving grill
- Good value & good quality
- Great priduct, best from alk George Forman
This is a great gadget and has been very helpful with my diet. I am not a talented cook but this grill makes it easy to cook small protein rich portions (chicken, veggie burgers, lowfat hot dogs, salmon fillets, tuna steaks, etc. The meats taste so much better grilledi also recommend the george foreman grill sponges for easy cleanup, and the oxo good grips silicone pastry brush to ‘paint’ olive oil on the grill surface prior to pre-heating.
I have recently been watching my husband’s and my servings of foods (2 adults only in our house). The biggest change was making sure our meat portions were ‘healthy servings’ and not overdoing it. We have made a habit of eating between 3 1/2 oz to 5 oz of meat in a serving and these grills are perfect for that. You could easily put 2 – 3 servings on the grilling space, depending on the size. I choose a little thicker cuts so they fit very well. We were not sure if we would like the grill when we received it as a gift, but it has turned out to be one of the most used appliances in the kitchen. This grill is so easy to clean and take care of that you won’t believe it ’til you try it. I am buying a larger one to use when we have company, it makes the meat taste great and so far has always been tender and juicy. I highly recommend purchasing one of these for a 1 – 3 person family using portions as i described above.
Ditto what everyone else has said. Now, here is an easy way to clean this grill. (seems to be the biggest complaint) after you are done cooking, and are ready to unplug, place a wet paper towel in the grill (while it’s still hot). After it is cooled all you need to do is take out the towel, it will have absorbed most of the grease. Anything else will easily wipe away. I hope this helps anyone who is having a hard time w/ cleaning. This little machine has become my number one appliance. I can easily make grilled cheese for my son, grilled vegatble wraps for me and all the chicken my spouse cares to eat, with virtualy no washing.I ready to upgrade to a larger model.
I heard so many people say good things about this grill that i decided to get one for myself. It definitely makes grilling easy and fun at the same time. Since purchasing the grill, i’ve cooked bacon, hamburgers and steaks. You can cook a pretty good sized steak but it can’t be too big. The grill’s big enough to cook 2 hamburgers at a time though. It works really great on bacon, though because all of the fat drips off and then it’s easy to dispense with because it runs into the little plastic container that comes with the grill. You have to cut bacon slices in half for it to fit but it’s not a big deal. Basically, i would recommend this grill to anyone looking for a fun and easy grilling solution. If you need to cook for large groups of people (4 or more) you’ll definitely want a bigger size but it’s perfect for cooking for one or two people. It grills foods fast because you don’t have to cook one side and then turn it over.
George foreman makes a great product, but this one is a little too small for a couple. For example it cannot take more than one piece of protein at a time which is a problem for a couple in an apartment. I must say, you simply cannot live without a foreman if you are single or in college.
Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.
It is my third electric grill (first george foreman) and by far the easiest to clean and cooks the best. I find it to be amazingly fast compared to my last grill. The bun warmer handle broke on my second use of the grill. It is cheaply attached and the less than 1/16th inch size piece of plastic on the handle broke while i was trying to open it. I cleaned it up and put a piece of gaffers tape on it and have kept using it. Duct tape will also work but gaffers tape doesn’t leave a sticky residue and comes in black so it doesn’t look like a repaired appliance. So george foreman makers please spend a little more on the handle and your concept will work. If you had used the grill before you put it on the market i might be given you a five star rating rather than three.
I have never bothered in all these years to give a review on any product although i have relied on other amazon reviews for purchases in the past. This older grill was given to me by a lady leaving the neighborhood who had only used it a couple of times over the many years. I cannot believe how well this little unit performs its grilling chores. Hamburgers only take a few minutes to cook and have that ‘charbroiled’ top that i happen to like. The fat and other juices roll right off. Clean up with a sponge is a breeze on the nonstick surfaces although i swab them down prior to cooking with a little olive oil. The bread/bun warmer or whatever it is on top just takes up space. Never thought i would give an electric mini grill of all things an endorsement, but this baby does the job in a big way. When the nonstick surface inevitably loses its slickness, i will opt for the larger size grill which can easily handle a couple of hamburgers instead of just one.
I bought this to replace a still working but worn george foreman grill that i’ve had for over 10 years. I decided to stick with this model since many reviews of the newer versions mentioned it not getting hot enough or taking too long to cook and that it had an extremely short cord. This model heats up quickly and cooks a 1/4lb burger in under 10 min and you can warm the bun in the top. It comes with plenty of cord to reach any available counter outlet. Just wipe the interior grill plates with a paper towel (they aren’t removable). Likewise use a towel to remove the collected fat from the drip tray and pop it in the dishwasher or give it a quick hand wash. The only caveat, this grill is only able to cook a single burger or sandwich at a time so if you’ve got a crowd to feed some will have to wait.
I was unsure about the george foreman school of cuisine but my sister (who has a big one) raved about how fast and easy it is. But the champ is just a wee bit too small to get down to business with if you are cooking for more than one person. I wish salton would add a variable temperature control to its design, which is a good one. My main tip for cooking on it is to turn the food once as the top plate does get hotter than the bottom one. Overall, if you are one person and not looking to cook a feast, this size of foreman will do you fine. Try marinated grilled shrimp or portobello mushrooms on it.
I bought this as a gift for an elderly woman. The bun warmer lid is fastened so securely that she cannot get it open. It was hard for me to get it open, but with effort i could do it. The grill plates do not come off the grill so she is unable to remove them for easy cleaning. The grill is too heavy for her to hold at the sink with one hand and clean with the other, so she uses a sponge while it sits in place on her counter. I gave it three stars for the convenience of it’s size, especially for a person who lives alone to use.
This is perfect for preparing a quick meal, whether it be a steak, hamburger or chicken cutlet.
Great for grilling burgers, fish, vegetables
The only drawback is the coating wears out too soon. It is really an inexpensive item so one may expect this. The bun warmer was a nice idea. As a time saver that can put out a great tasting item it is priceless. Getting rid of the fats is also a plus.
I had one of these when i was in china (8 years) and it worked like a champ. (and the box was exactly the same as the picture, i guess maybe they’re made there). Depending on where you were, the only chance to get a decent burger was to make it yourselfburgers, chicken, fish, there was nothing this thing couldn’t handle. I had to cook quite a bit if i wanted something that i could recognize from back home. Now that i’m back in the states, i’m getting another one of these.
It don’t cook enough burger or pork chops.
I bought the george foreman grill as a joke for my husband (it does say ‘lean mean fat-reducing grilling machine’ on it), but we used it every day for three weeks solid after it arrived. It’s easy, and the food turns out really tastythis particular model is small, and will only cook one or two portions of meat at a time. However, the grill cooks from the top and bottom all at once to cut your cooking time down to mere minutes.The grill is tilted and comes with a trough so that all excess fat is drained away from your food. It’s also fairly easy to clean up — you just wipe down the grill and throw the trough in the dishwasher. We’ve used the grill for chicken breasts, boca burgers, regular burgers, pork chops, steaks, and even bacon strips (it’s great for avoiding a bunch of messy bacon grease). It cooks even frozen meat in a relatively short period of time, and it cooks it thoroughly. It’s easy to throw something on the grill, sprinkle some seasonings on it (bam), and let it cook for a few minutes while you fix the rest of the meal.
This is a simple way to cook for one or two without using lots of electricity. And, the food taste good and has lots of flavor. The bun warmer lets me keep buns fruzen until i need to use one, which is much less waste on a limited budget.
I love 🌹the warmer work 👍.
Includes dishwasher-safe plastic drip tray and spatula
I re bought this product, using the model number. First tume i got it was in 2005. I replaced it in 2014, because & only cuz the clear lead (bun warmer) broke. Otherwise iys great item does it job very well. On local store the item are not that perfect. This product / model, has the right weight to press & cook the chicken, burger or meet in perfect cook, time. Great product for small family. Doesnt have a on/off or timer button, so it can’t be leave alone, it cooks pretty fast, and must be unplug right after.
I don’t use it for everything all the time but if i just need a single serving quick it’s great. I put veggies on here (fresh and frozen), fish, chicken, burgers, quesadillas, etc. The bun warmer feature isn’t all that great but i don’t use it anyway, i prefer the toaster. I highly recommend this for bachelors and bachelorettes living alone or college students.
Overall, this is a neat gadget. For $20, to cook a hamburger perfectly, it’s lovely. I have two issues with it, however. I know they make bigger ones, but i bought this one because it was supposed to be perfect for two. It did not fit both 8 oz hamburgers. Secondly, it is really difficult to clean. Removeable plates would be nice. On the plus side, it cooked the burgers perfectly (after i cut them to fit)and the bun warmer worked really well.
This champ grill was purchased to replace my first one which i had and used for years. The cord went bad on that one and was beginning to spark, but that grill was so good, i didn’t hesitate in deciding to purchase another. I’ve used this several times now and i’m just as pleased with its performance as i was with my other. It’s perfect for a quick burger or fish fillet (or many other ‘treats’) that taste best grilled. Yes, it’s small, but with some creative positioning, it will hold two of your meal choice.
This has to be the best grill ever made. I love my george foreman champ grill so much i bought a second one, and one for the kids. We all love our george foreman electric grill.It’s not a traditional charcoal grill. It could be useful in smaller spaces like porches, easy to use, easy to clean, cuts fat (never hurts, right?), and a good back-up grill or a quick solution to throwing mini-bbqs. All without the hassle of buying, lighting, dumping coal, the smell of lighter fluid fumes and smoke. The only thing that really bugs me.
It was a christams gift for my boyfriend. It was a little small but will do the trick.
You have to kind of figure out when its done. I wouldn’t go by the lights. Better to go for another version of the grill. The two burger thing is a lie. I buy frozen burgers and one is all that can fit. I mean maybe they’re thinking whit castle size burgers. But yeah okay and works but wish i would’ve gotten another version.
Also includes bun warmer
I actually bought this for a friend last year as an x-mas present and whenever i see him he always sings its praises. He says it’s easy to clean, cooking temp is consistent and that he can make great steaks on it. This is one of those things that people claim they can use everyday and that’s exactly what my friend does. He said he goes to costco and buys a big pack of steaks and he’s set for a couple of months. That actually doesn’t sound very healthy or appealing but the point is that the product works as advertised.
I bought the george foreman champ grill with bun warmer for my mother on her 80th birthday. She has rheumatoid arthritis and cannot stand for any amount of time. After receiving and trying it she called me and was extremely delighted with how it cooked, how fast it cooked and the ease of cleaning it. Now she doesn’t have to be a vegetarian any more, she lives with her nephew and all he eats are beans and vegetables. In fact he started eating chicken since mom started cooking with the george foreman grill. So everyone is happy especially me.
Bought this for my daughter we have had one for a long time we use it all of the time we love how quickly it cooks and how it draines the greese.
I have owned several of these. This is a wonderful buy, and i am able to take it with me when i travel thank you, george for a delicious, nutritious, and toil free way of cooking.
I love my grill, it’s the best present that i have ever gotten. I can cook just about any piece of meat that i could want. The greatest thing about it, i no longer have to fire up the grill and wait 20 minutes for the coals to cook a good burger. Once this baby is warmed up i have a medium burger in less than 6 minutes. All of the fast food places would love to be able to trun out a true 1/3lb burger that is as nice and juicy as a george foreman burger. But they can’t becuase they do not have this grill. Fajits and small steaks and chops are just as easy and just as fast. Just remember to filp your food about halfway through, the top cooks slightly hotter than the bottom. Get this grill, and you will have great food in no time.
The george foreman gr10abw champ grill with bun warmer, was a gold box item. Everyone that i spoke with, raved about their ‘george foreman. ‘ i thought it would be a great gift for my college student daughter (not domestic at all). So far she has cooked chicken breast, all types of fresh veggies, and veggie burgers. I thought it would be a cleanup problem ~ but she said that it is not messy at all. Now i do not worry about her eating properly. She likes hers so much, i am buying the family one too. My parents (age 80) have a much larger one and they love it.
Patented grill grooves let oil run off while food is cooking
Great grill, easy to use and easy to clean.
Fast, low-fat way to grill almost anything, heats quickly.
This was a great version of the george foreman grill and a good price. The bun warmer is ok, although i wish that the cover could come off to allow for larger pieces of break to be toasted. The grill is great for chicken or other items. It cleans easily, and i would buy again. This would be awesome if it had cast iron grill plates instead of the non-stick.
I’ve had a several variations on the small george foreman grills. I have literally worn most of them out, and they last when cared for. They are great when making a meal in the summer. It doesn’t noticeably heat the room like the broiler in my oven and i think it uses much less power all year round. They are just the right size for one or two people. I cooked steak, lamb, pork, chicken, salmon, tuna, cod, haddock, bluefish, trout, and a bunch of stuff that just isn’t coming immediately to mind. The biggest danger is over-cooking because it’s so fast and cooks from both sides at once. When cooking for one and there is space behind a steak or pork chop, i put slices of veggies like bell pepper and onions back there to cook with the steak.
It was cheap and it works perfectly.
Having this grill makes cooking a simpler task especially when you’re rushing trying to decide what you can cook, and how you’ll be able to get it finished while helping the children with homework, and preparing for tomorrow’s day. We’re living in the phase of ‘drive thru convenience’ you know that we all want it quick, fast, with minimal cost, and not a lot of clean up. Here is the answer to mcdonald’s burger king, and any of your other fast food costly spots. Not only does it save you dough, but it also cuts the fat. Breakfast, lunch, and or dinner this grill is sure to please every consumer. What every kitchen wishes for.
Never realized i could use it for so much in my kitchen.
This was gifted to me, and at first, i didn’t think i would use it. The perfect grilled cheese sandwich, quesadillas, hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken breasts, stuffed mushrooms, kabobs. And the fat just drains off (because the grill is on an incline).I never knew how many delicious sandwiches could be made with a grill. My father’s favorite is peanut butter and marshmallow fluff. The grill makes it melty and delicious. I do nutella and bananas or peanut butter and bananas. Chicken, tomatoes, mozarella. Whatever your favorite sandwich with cheese in it is, this will make it ten times better.
You must wait til hot enough, about 1 minute before putting your meat in. Better watch it because after it is hot, will burn. I have used this grill almost 3x per week with burgers, steaks, chicken breast. Only two of us so most steaks, we split. Just now ordered an additional one for our motor home. I am truly sorry for my 2013 review.
